An elf secret agent, a sassy young girl, and twin mouse siblings join forces to save the holiday season in 'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS. This Hickory Community Theatre special event plays in the Jeffers Theatre December 10th & 17th.
Making a rollicking return to the HCT stage as Emily (Red Cast) is Sadie Sapp.
Fiery Fifth Grader and honor roll student Sapp made a similarly spirited HCT debut as Angel Choir in THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER. Since then she has appeared at HCT in MACBETH, BUGSY MALONE and THE LITTLE MERMAID JR. She has also appeared in a traveling production of THUMBELINA for The Green Room Community Theatre, and will be performing as Lead Mouse in THE NUTCRACKER for Hickory Ballet & Performing Arts.
When not doing school work and attending classes at HBPA, Sapp enjoys reading, knitting, baking, and being a big sister. She appreciates everyone—kids, adults and, of course, Sir Samuel—she has met in her time at Hickory Community Theatre, and is ha-ha-happy to be performing in another holiday-themed show. "I love XMas. My favorite time ever!"
